Let’s talk true crime. Society’s unwavering obsession with understanding, dissecting and chronicling each and every detail behind humanity’s most reprehensible acts is certainly nothing new. And lucky for pop culture fanatics, the genre has undoubtedly become stitched into the very fabric of the entertainment word. And while some would say doubting prosecutions, rehashing evidence and asking a victims’ loved ones to relive their pain day after day is callous and exploitative, millions of television … read more

I’ve spent the last 24 hours talking, texting and emailing with other guys around Hollywood who, like me, had the pleasure of knowing and playing hockey with Alan Thicke. We are all still reeling from his death at age 69.
While I didn’t know Alan as well as many of the Hollywood industry hockey players with whom I often play in charity games, Alan was so damn personable and genuine, you felt like you were his best friend.
I connected earlier today with one of Alan’s longtime hockey buddies, Cuba … read more

Now that we’ve had some time to process the Golden Globe nominations – go here for the film nominations and here for the TV nominations – it’s time to analyze the snubs. Before we get started, let me just say that I’m pretty happy with the nominations from a diversity standpoint: Moonlight was recognized, and Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris was recognized individually. I’m very pleased with Loving’s nominations too, although I think it will be an uphill battle for Ruth Negga to win … read more

The defining event of 2016 may have been the presidential election, but the political names that hit the headlines ― notably Donald, Hillary and Bernard ― are unlikely to find themselves on an overwhelming number of new baby birth certificates. And so for Nameberry’s “Names of the Year,” we’ve mostly looked beyond politics to other bold names that reflect current trends and are prime to inspire baby names of the future.

Like you, James Marsden was just as surprised about Westworld’s Season 1 finale.
According to the actor, who plays Teddy Flood the gunslinger with a heart of gold, he didn’t see the shocking twist ending pertaining to the “maze” that everyone was trying to solve throughout the season.
“I got the final script and was like ‘Whoa,’ but for a while we had to kind of keep our mouths shut,” he told Entertainment Tonight at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards, where co-star Evan Rachel Wood … read more

They are talented, they are loved and they came back to make 2016 one special year.
While the past 12 months have had its ups and downs, we’re here to focus on the stars who decided it was finally time to come back on the Hollywood scene in a big way.
Perhaps that’s a new record with smash hit singles. Maybe it’s two famous faces deciding life is better together than it is apart. Yes we’re talking about you Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. Or could it just be a reality star that is back on the small … read more

It’s hard to believe but the popular film Jerry Maguire has hit the two-decade mark after originally premiering on Dec. 6, 1996 (yes, we’re feeling pretty old, too).
It’s officially been 20 years since Cuba Gooding Jr. yelled, “Show me the money!” and Renée Zellweger told Tom Cruise, “You had me at hello,” through teary eyes—a scene that’s caused us to reach for the tissues time and time again.
Other mega stars like Regina King and Jerry O’Connell also made their appearances in the ’90s flick, … read more

As someone who used to date a Kardashian, Scott Disick knows his booty.
The reality star, who was spotted visiting the Epione dermatology center in Beverly Hills on Wednesday (Nov. 30, 2016), recently hinted that Rob Kardashian has a butt that could rivals his famous sisters. In a cheeky post shared on Instagram, Scott expressed that the new dad has definitely got some juice in the caboose.
“My baby got back lol,” the 33-year-old captioned two photos of Rob wearing bum-hugging shorts. So, … read more

When American Horror Story: Roanoke first started, few could have predicted how it would all end, or who would still be standing when we got to the finale.
We assumed we’d see more of the couple who gave up their life savings to buy the house, or of the actors who played them in the reenactment. In the end, however, it was the the cop sister, who survived nearly to the end of all ten episodes thanks to the fact that she was willing to do anything to protect her daughter, and also partly thanks to … read more

After some deep soul-searching and a good night’s rest, I’ve come to the conclusion that American Horror Story: Roanoke was not very good. It started off promising enough with the show-with-a-show gimmick My Roanoke Nightmare. But as most seasons of American Horror Story ultimately do, it burned so bright and so fast that by the end of the installment, it was nothing more than a pile of ashes strewn about — a sad remnant of its ambitious beginnings. The Roanoke finale represented everything that’s … read more
